Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Our experienced veterinarians provide many surgical services at our clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome, we occasionally refer them to specialists (board-certified veterinary surgeons) to perform complex operations when advanced equipment or training will be beneficial. Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
We make every effort to make anesthesia as safe as possible, especially for our older or higher risk patients. We offer pre-anesthetic bloodwork profiles that can be done in house the same day as the surgical procedure. During anesthesia we monitor multiple vital signs including but not limited to heart rate, respiratory rate, SpO2, CO2, and blood pressure. While your pet is asleep a technician is assigned to monitoring visible vital signs as well the readings on the electronic monitor to make sure you pet is not only safe, but also as pain free as possible during all procedures.
We offer on site state of the art digital radiographs (x-rays). Digital radiographs allow us to take sharper images that can be enlarged as well as lighten and darken to best visualize different body parts on a single image. This allows us to get diagnostic images with fewer shots reducing your pet's exposure to radiation as well as saving you money. We also have digital dental radiography to improve our ability to diagnose and treat dental disease. Images created in a digital format also make it much easier to make copies of your pet's x-rays for referral or travel if needed.
We provide EKG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
We offer a wide range of dental services starting with demonstrations and tips for at home care. For some information on at home care check out www.vohc.org For a demonstration on at home care check out our you tube video.
Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
We offer Iso/universal microchip identification for all companion animals. For more information on microchips and how they work click here.
We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
For added convenience we have also added an online pharmacy with home delivery to our services. Now you can order many of your pet's medications and foods online and have it delivered directly to your home.Shop Now
We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.
We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.

Routine and therapeutic bathing services are available. For your pet to receive a bath please have them here before 9:30 in the morning and they will be dry and ready to go home after 2 in the afternoon. We only offer baths Monday-Friday.
Laser Therapy Reduces Pain and Speeds Healing
TVAC is excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s response. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.
It is crucial for your pet’s vision that we detect and treat glaucoma and other problems with intraocular pressure (pressure within the eye) as quickly as possible. We can test your dog or cat’s eyes for excess pressure easily and safely. The test, performed with a device called a tonometer, is not painful and does not require sedation.
Ultrasonography is a noninvasive, pain-free procedure that uses sound waves to examine a pet’s internal organs and other structures inside the body. It can be used to evaluate the animal’s heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, and bladder; to detect fluid, cysts, tumors, or abscesses; and to confirm pregnancy or monitor an ongoing pregnancy. While we may need to shave a spot on your pet, ultrasound does not typically require sedation and has no known side effects.
Beyond dogs and cats we also provide care for many exotic and pocket pets. Some of the pets we see at TVAC are Ferrets, rabbits, reptiles, small rodents, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, fish and spiders. We do not see primates, venomous animals, or large cats. If you have an exotic pet and want to know if we are qualified see it please give us a call.
